Come and meet our beautiful babies on a Cria Watch experience!
Over the summer we love to give our visitors the chance to meet our fantastic baby alpacas (or ‘cria’, to use their official name!) Join us on one of our Cria Watch sessions to learn a little about babies and birthing before being taken out to the fields to meet the proud mums and gorgeous babies.
A Cria Watch is a magical experience for the whole family, and is particularly suitable for our younger visitors or those who are unsure if an alpaca walk is right for them.
It’s perfect for couples, friends and groups too, because who doesn’t love to spend time surrounded by alpacas?
